We want all of the items we pass on to be considered a gift which is why we ask that all donated items are:
- in as-new or excellent used condition
- clean and in excellent working order
- freshly sterilised, cleaned, laundered
- please ensure all large items, such as cots and change tables are dismantled with bolts and cots in a zip lock bag
- manuals should be provided where possible or model numbers provided if known.
Please note that some items (such as cots, prams, car seats, highchairs and bassinets) have safety standards. Details about these standards can be found here. You can also obtain a copy of the safety standards on the ACCC website.

We are lucky enough to offer a Southside donation point for three items. Donations of books, children’s clothing, and linen (single, cot, bassinet) only can be made at Club Kalina, 2/167 Soward Way, Tuggeranong. All other items must be donated directly to Roundabout Canberra in Holt and will not be accepted at Club Kalina. Club Kalina is open Monday – Friday 9am-5pm
Items we can accept
Roundabout Canberra is appreciative of all donations from the Canberra community. There may be times where we cannot pass these items onto families in need through our networks. In these situations we have connections with a range of other not-for-profits such as St Vincent de Paul’s, St John’s Care, Street Pantries, Green Shed and Koomarri. We may pass on items to these organisations which aligns with our philosophy of re-use, re-home and recycle.
There are some items we cannot accept due to safety considerations, hygiene or capacity limits. For big items such as beds and furniture, we do not have enough space to store these items. Please head to www.givit.org.au to donate these larger items to other local charities.
